The idea of this game is that you and another friend of yours select a character (one being Sonic and the other being Tails) and you both battle it out to try to gain as many hits on Eggman. The catch is that Eggman only gets destroyed when the timer runs down to 0 (unless it's a draw at that time, then, it will wait for another hit). The player with the most hits at the end of the timer wins! You can also win if the other player dies before the timer runs out (if respawn mode is off). The...

Sonic 1 Easy mode is port of Sonic 1's Easy mode from the Sega Saturn game Sonic Jam. Easy mode uses completely different level layouts. The level order is also different and some levels are omitted completely (but are still playable using level select).

A reverse (and sequel) of an earlier Sonic 2 hack I did called "Keep  Tails Or Else ." You have 30 seconds to get rid of  Tails otherwise  you get a game over. Clearing the challenge immediately warps you to the next act. Go for the highest score!

Sonic the Hedgehog  is the first of many games starring Sega's premier hedgehog, Sonic. It's a side-scrolling platform game with a difference: speed. Sonic rushes through levels with incredible speed, allowing him to traverse loops and jumps with ease. The plot of the game is simple. The evil Dr. Robotnik has captured many of Sonic's animal friends, and trapped them inside robots. Fortunately, Sonic can free his friends by destroying the robots with his spin attack. Meanwhile, Dr. Robotnik is...

Virtua Racing or V.R. for short, is a Formula One racing arcade game, developed by Sega AM2 and released in October 1992. Virtua Racing was initially a proof-of-concept application for exercising a new 3D-graphics platform under development, the "Model 1".

Though its use of 3D polygonal graphics was predated by arcade rivals Namco (Winning Run in 1988) and Atari (Hard Drivin' in...

Activating a WTF LAME monitor will cause the level to fade out, and then the screen will be filled with a scrolling tl;dr rant that you cannot escape. The scrolling text is achieved by writing character data to the scroll plane every 8 scanlines, resulting in a smooth scroll. (For full details on how this works, see wtflame.asm in the source code archive.) Once the scrolling rant has finished, a Game Over screen will appear saying "Sorry...you have just lost The Game. Try again." and...

CrazySonic is a joke hack of Sonic the Hedgehog by Ralakimus. This project was first released as a demo build in July of 2015 and was later released in October for SHC 2015. This hack is a mixture of CrazyBus' gameplay and music and Sonic 1's gameplay, plus other additions. It was designed to be as obnoxious as possible to evoke negative reactions from players. Despite this, it is generally considered to be amusing by players, especially first time players.
